Facilities, Closures, and Board MeeTing Dates

On November 6, 2018, the Rochester Public Library District is asking residents within the Sangamon and Christian County library district to vote on a tax rate increase for an approximately $3.2 million dollar bond which will expand and renovate the library to address increased use of the library and cover operational costs.

Library Holiday Closures and Board Meetings

Booking & Reservations

Reservations for one-time use are accepted up to 6 months in advance. Bookings are made through the Rochester Public Library.

Village and Library use is first priority, followed by non-profit groups, then private use. Booking is first-come, first-served. A signed agreement and payment of fees constitutes confirmation. Only the Village or Library may “bump” a confirmed booking in dire situations, and alternate facilities or a credit is provided.

Rules for Use

Users are expected to abide by the rules found on the user agreement form, a hard copy of which is available at the library upon request.  Alternatively, the form can be accessed and printed from her by clicking the following link:  Community Room Contract (updated August 28th, 2018).
